We are excited to release a new video (click on the image above) of California Guitar Trio playing the classic Melrose Avenue. The video was filmed in Hollywood and features the original Bert Lams house where CGT was formed in 1991, composed Melrose Ave and recorded the first CGT album. Video by tourbuslive.com
Album cover photography by Paul RichardsFirst collaborative studio release by revered guitar trios delivers unique arrangements of David Bowie’s “Space Oddity” and Radiohead’s “Weird Fishes,” and dynamic originals.
The album’s original works showcase the wide range of the sextet. “New Horizons” kicks off the release and builds up from an initial pulse into a beautiful, complex, percussive arrangement. “Magneto” is a kinetic, mercurial piece full of addictive riffs and flurries. “Fortune Island” features complex, engaging rhythms and time signatures, as well as inventive processed sounds. Minimalism meets shifting melodies on “Glass Tango.” The beautiful, lilting “First Steps” rounds out the recording’s new compositions. – Anil Prasad
We recorded “In a Landscape” in a small historic church on a lake about 1 hour north of Montreal in Gore Quebec.
